Boeing Globemaster III —
Operation Baby Formula Lift. This was the aircraft that brought the first load of Baby Formula in from RMS on Sunday May 22nd. Here she is shown departing out of IND on 5-L 05-23-22. Hickam based bird.
Wow, they had to airlift a C17's worth of baby formula from Ramstein Air Base, Germany.
Neat shot John. What a situation though to have to take such measures.
Larry, not "A" C-17 worth, multiple loads, plus multiple loads of the C-5Ms involved as well. Nationwide Formula shortfall. Sanitation oversight shortfall plus the over consolidation of supply chain resources. The capitalists (corporate planners) are putting capitalism under some serious stress.
But what puzzles me is, why is there a P-8 Poseidon parked in Indianapolis? Seems a long way from saltwater.
Thanks for the history making shot
Skylab72 - AAR has a mx contract with the U.S. Navy and Justice department to perform mx and mods on their P-8's, and 737-400's & 737-700's. I've captured as many as five of the P-8's in one shot. I believe they can get 8-10 in their hangars at a time, maybe even as many as 12, but I believe 8 is what I recall seeing with all the mx hangar doors open and various tails parked outside.
